Like many people I preferred Kuang Si falls but these are still stunning compared to most. The swimming areas are large, calm and deep. We did the hike up to the very top (waterfall 3) but it was quite steep and slippy due to the...More

Beautiful waterfalls where you can enjoy a very nice swim in cristal clear water. Worth the visit ! Place you should not miss if you visit Luang Prabang. Better on a sunny day of course to enjoy the colors.

First step is amazing, with natural pools where you can refresh yourself... next 2 steps are really challenging to reach out especially in rainy season, but they really worth the effort!

Been lucky it was a rainy morning and the place was deserted, as these falls are much less impressive than the Kuang si ones and when crowded must be terrible. Because of the rain it was quite a risky and slippery walk to the 2d...More

Tad Sae Waterfalls were lovely, though we weren't that impressed because we had visited Kuang Si Waterfalls the day before. If you have the time, it's a nice place to visit.

Took a scooter out to the falls, quiet cheap to visit considering. Believe you can do elephant rides there which is horrible and should be banned. The falls themselves were enjoyable however we nearly got left at the falls and the last boat was leaving...More

There are a number of waterfalls but I didn’t make it to the top one. You can swim in at least three but need good shoes with grip as - well you’re in a rain Forrest.

Sad thing about Tad Sae is it's dry during hottest season like April or May. But still have some water runing down... you may feel a bit disappointed seeing a dry waterfall.

We stayed in the downtown, just next to the main streets. There is no other place close to the Tad Sea Waterfall which is out of the downtown. It takes 45 minutes - 1 hour to Tad Sea by tuk tuk. But the road is quite good... More
